Social Justice & Diversity Graduate Research Fellows

Full Description

The Social Justice and Diversity Graduate Research Fellows program brings together graduate students from across the disciplines in a community to support and promote research in the areas of social justice and diversity. The fellowship will facilitate networking and interdisciplinary collaborations, provide a platform for feedback and mentoring, and create a space where new projects can be discussed and promoted. 

Any master's or doctoral student at William & Mary is invited to apply for the one-year fellowship. Fellows will be placed into three- to five-person research teams under the guidance of a faculty or post-doctoral mentor based on topic of interest. Teams will meet regularly through the spring and fall semesters to share progress on individual research projects, share best practices and serve as a sounding board.

Four brown-bag sessions will be offered on topics related to research and manuscript writing in the area of social justice and diversity, with a particular emphasis on the development of practical, rigorous research skills and the advancement of research in the field of social justice and diversity.

Eight students were selected as inaugural fellows for 2017-2018. More information about the application to become a 2018-2019 fellow will be available in early 2018.
